Traverse City house description
This beautiful lakeside home named 'Steel 'N Away' is located on a three acre lakefront site with contemporary furnishings and 100 feet of direct lakefront access. The home contains new kitchen and the latest electronics.
The home is ideal for your family, conveniently located for easy access to Traverse City and surrounding activities such as golf, water sports, shopping, and fine restaurants. Situated on a beautiful 2000 acre freshwater inland lake, you have a wonderful large, picturesque front and rear yard which is great for the kids to play safely.
Entertain on the huge deck and watch the kids play. Private 100 foot wood dock is available for you to bring your own boat and jet ski, or you may rent them from local companies that deliver to your door.

The house was very clean and welcoming (even had fresh wildflowers on the table). The layout was especially nice for our group with plenty of quiet space for the kids and room for the adults to visit, play cards, etc. We did a lot of cooking and eating at the house and it was well set up for that. We enjoyed the large outdoor space, fire ring, and sunsets, We also enjoyed using the furnished canoe on the lake. The owner was accessible by text messaging and returned messages promptly. I would recommend this property to anyone. We enjoyed hearing soft music from Interlochen Music Camp in the evenings and being close to Traverse City, but away from all the traffic and bustle.

Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with teenagers, families with young children, romantic getaway, sightseeing, age 55+.
Brought friends from Chicago and this was a great rental. Nine of us in all, plenty of space, beautiful home and great lake. Close to TC but far enough away to feel relaxed. Great restaurants near by and hit all the wine tastings. Bass almost jumped into our boat. Everything we needed was there, including a lot of beach towels and well stocked kitchen. Pictures are accurate, listing accurate, clean, well maintained, would recommend this to anyone. Rental of pontoon from Break N' Waves, great service and queen of the fleet boat. Go to Stela's, Apache Trout Grill, and Boathouse on Mission Peninsula. Avoid Fire Fly, poor service and mediocre food.

We just returned to Florida after a wonderful couple weeks in Northern Michigan with family. The home we rented on Duck Lake was lovely and one of our favorites after 20 years of renting in the area. The acreage makes the home feel private and "northern" including the deer in the driveway at night. The home is spacious and comfortable and very child friendly with the wood floors. The view out the front room is magnificent and breezes come across the peninsula right into the bedrooms. The front lawn area is a pleasant place for family to gather and the dock is great to lay out on. I liked having plenty of towels (including beach towels) and three bathrooms! The kitchen was dreamy with plenty of space to put the food. And double oven! Thanks for sharing your home! We hope to come back again!

About the owner: Family for West Michigan who loves our lakefront home. We only wish we didn't have to rent it out!
Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
Our home is only a few hour drive from our full-time house. It is on a quiet lake with friendly neighbors. It is close enough to Traverse City to enjoy its activities, but far enough to feel away from it all.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
relaxation, outdoors, clean lake, great summer weather.
